    Men store up to 4.6 times more Iron than age-matched women

    https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/11995291/ "This article summarizes research conducted during the last 2 decades that addresses the idea that stored iron plays a role in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis and that iron reduction through phlebotomy may play a role in the treatment or prevention...

    Evidence For Apo B Lipoproteins As The Root Cause Of Atherosclerosis

    “A new paradigm for preventing atherosclerotic cardiovascula disease (ASCVD) is needed. The most recent US data show the long-term decline in cardiovascular deaths has stopped, and has started to increase in the most at-risk populations.1 Indeed, rising rates of obesity and diabetes mellitus in...

    Endotoxin Causes (liver) Steatosis, Insulin Resistance And Atherosclerosis

    I know this study was in hepatitis C patients only, but there is nothing about Hep C that would invalidate this finding in the general population too. Quite a few people on the forum reported that when they tried to talk to their doctor about endotoxin and its possible role in their health...

    Endotoxin (LPS) Theory Of Atherosclerosis (CVD)

    I posted a study more than year ago, which examined the role of NO in aging and disease. The Nitric Oxide (NO) Theory Of Aging One of the main endogenous stimulators of NO synthesis is endotoxin (LPS). It turns out that the connection between LPS and CVD has been studied for a long time in...

    Grey Hair May Be A Biomarker For CVD (and Biological Age) In Men

    Ray has written about the role of low copper, high serotonin, and generally low thyroid function in changing hair color from dark (or blonde) into white with advancing age. It just so happens, that these phenomena also affect heart health. I have long suspected that premature greying of hair on...

    Androsterone As A Thyromimetic Treatment For Gout And CVD

    These studies are old, but I am just posting them here as further support of the thyromimetic properties of androsterone. As we know, thyroid hormone is the primary regulator of levels of uric acid and serum lipids and Ray has recommended improvement of thyroid function as the primary method for...

    Positive Impact Of Vitamin B3 On CVD Is Not Due To Lowering Cholesterol

    Comparisons with treatment with niacin to raise HDL and lower LDL has been considered the gold-standard for all new statin drugs. However, it has been shown that both niacin and niacinamide have the same protective effects on cardiovascular disease (CVD) despite the fact that niacinamide has...

    Ssri (sertraline) And Coronary Artery Atherosclerosis

    "Our findings suggest that long-term treatment with this drug promotes coronary artery atherosclerosis in non-human primates," Shively said. "This may be clinically significant for people because almost a quarter of middle-aged women in the United States take antidepressants, the most prescribed...
